Thumbs up Bucket List Tarpon

Not the biggest but it was my first. Fished Ding Darling on Sanibel and even with the wind blowing strong out of the NW all day the baby Tarpon still managed to make an occasional appearance just as they have been the last few days. I did pick up a small Snook in addition to the Tarpon so it was a good day all the way around.

The Tarpon ate a fly called the Squibster tied by my friend Pete Squib, it was on a size 4 and is a very small white fly which is what the tarpon are on. I did manage to jump one other which was a little bigger. I did get two really nice jumps out of this guy which just made my first Tarpon a little more special for me.

Ding Darling is closed on Friday's but I know where I will be on Saturday.
